Product Overview

The NAPOLEON Prestige Series P500 Gas has 500 sq. in. of grilling area, and another 260 sq. in. with the generous, 9 in. D, warming rack. Grill up to 30 burgers at a time on your NAPOLEON P500 Gas Grill. This grill is big and beautiful, without taking up all of your outdoor space. There is even storage in the minimalist pedestal base, with tool hooks on the inside of the doors you will always have what you need on hand with this grill. With the superior LIFT EASE roll top lid, the heat stays in your grill. Roast food with ease and bake anything from chicken to a cake. This can save you energy on your cooling bill in the summer. Turn your gas grill into a smoker with the NAPOLEON Smoker Tube. Fill the tube with soaked wood chips and place it over a lit burner to create smoked food perfection. The stainless steel body resists rust and other corrosion. The body of this grill isn't the only part that will stand the test of time. The Stainless Steel WAVE Rod Cooking Grids retain heat for long periods of time providing even heating while grilling. If the durable body and stainless steel cooking grids weren't enough, the Prestige P500 Gas Grill has staggered sear plates made from premium stainless steel as well. This unique design presents increased surface area for grease to vaporize for increased flavor. An added benefit is that the P500's sear plates are super easy to clean.

Looks like a high quality product. We bought this after seeing a friends Napolean. We assembled it in about 1.5 hours. The materials look high quality and assembly went smoothly. It started on the first click for each burner and flame adjustment is easy. It has a large temperature gauge on the lid. We chose this no frills model because we don't use the rotisserie or side burner-just basic barbeque. The model is made in Canada and has 10 years warranty on the burners, which are the weak link in any barbeque.

Perfect except for three annoying issues
Cooks chicken thoroughly but moist once the proper flame dial position was found. I have now learned to cook with the cover closed. I dislike the amount of flare ups and the amount of grease collected on the burner shields. I will be cleaning them soon so hopefully they have protected the burners. What I dislike the most is the smoke that billows out when the cover is opened when cooking burgers or steaks. It makes it impossible to see when it drifts right into ones eyes. This is not caused by wind. Working on a solution, possibly a fan. Is there a better cure? Again leaning to cook steaks with a nice sear while the cover is close closed. Again too many flare ups which over charred the meat until learned to be more vigilant.

First Class Grill!!!!!!
I have a Prestise 500 and I am very Happy with it, first class! Also got the SS Grid Scraper #62031 which works Really Well and the SS Smoker Box #67013 works but you need to pick up the grilling grate to fill/refill it, not a good idea because it is hot, oilly, has food on it. Better if a Smaller replacement grate would be used, so you could use it and take the smoker box lid off and on.
Best Grills Ever!
I love these grills so much that I owe two! Best grills I’ve ever owned.

Excellent Grill for people who care
I purchased a Prestige 500 to replace my MHP grill that I used for 26 years after very careful research. I liked the design of the Prestige 500 and the build quality, and assembly was not a problem. I LOVE this grill and we have enjoyed many great meals from it - fish, pork, beef and more. The rotisserie is fabulous for chicken - incredibly moist and flavorful. My main reason for the purchase was to get a larger grill area - I often cook meat, potatoes and veggies at the same time so cooking area needs to be big enough. I have been using my grill for almost six months now, and I can say that it is capable of generating an enormous amount of heat which can be challenging to moderate the temps to avoid burning the food. I will also note that I got the basic 500 Prestige grill - no side or rear burners needed for me.

Excellent grill for a lifetime
Love the grill and the design. its once in a lifetime to own such a grill. excellent even heating capability and love the wave grill grids
by imani
Great Purchase
Easy BBQ to set up with clear instructions. All of the features work great. My only constructive feedback is that a little more instruction on the use of the counter weight on the rotisserie would have been helpful.

Awesome grill, But issues with batteries/ lights
Love the grill, stays hot. Cooks even, went from broil king to this. The broil king was much hotter, but this has a much more even cook. My only complaint is the battery pack for the lights. I have a loose wire and need to jiggle the wires to get them to come on. Got my grill July 2019, and within a month the lights were starting to act up.

Good Product
Have had this product for about 1 month and so far I like it. It heats fast and provides a fairly even heated cooking surface. The right side is a bit hotter than the left but once you are aware of that it can be compensated for. With all 4 burners on you cannot get the heat below 400 degrees so if that is required, you must turn burners off. Also, the warming rack sits metal on metal and it tends to rattle. I really like the iGlow knobs and the easy open lid and the grill is easy to clean since it does not have a support bar in the middle.
